This blend of four Bordeaux varieties mingles lush fruit forward flavors and full-bodied ‘fine’ tannin. Big and bold with moderate alcohol not to overwhelm the palate.
Black cherry, dark plums and wild blueberry fruit are apparent on the nose. All flow onto the palate with a hint of menthol coming through. A full mid-palate of tannins, some spicy flavors abound although the wine is a little “angular” right now. It will benefit from being paired with a juicy steak to compliment the tannins. It will soften beautifully with cellar age.
